12:30 pm
just joins a very warm welcome or to life here in moscow. a new stories this hour ukraine's ex prime minister is sentenced to seven years in jail for abuse of power when signing gas contracts with russia the verdict was called violent clashes between supporters and police. going east moscow and beijing that cooperation as china becomes the first country in visits after declaring he will run for the presidency next year. also reporting that america's anti corporate protests in boston meet a fierce response from the police who reportedly war veterans taking part in the
12:31 pm
peaceful running. an externality for you to mull to and she's the former chief accountant for the european commission she says that brussels only cares about propping up the idea of the e.u. however much the logic grows and our interview is coming up next week. i'm talking to you martyr and dress and who is now a member of the european parliament for the u.k. independence party but she was formerly the european commission's chief accountants while she was in that job she raised concerns about flaws in the commission's accounting system which she said left it vulnerable to frauds lotter and dress and thanks for talking to us today now where you are you're a skeptic when you joined the commission as chief accountant no i was not idea of skeptically in fact i thought the euro project was
12:32 pm
a project of cooperation i thought they were sharing solutions among the different member states so i was quite owners to be able to be part of the european union and also or to be part of our if i had ministry to reform that they were undergoing what happened or what did you find out to make you change your mind when i found out that they had no control on the payments they were making out of the european union budget basically you know they didn't ask if people qualified to get the funding from the european union and i was responsible for the signature of the spain it's so i had the highest responsibility and i thought i needed to know if i was talking to the right person and for the right purpose and they just didn't care and they didn't allow me to make changes to be able to determine if we were making
12:33 pm
the right paper so what does what does that all mean by this means that you funding is going to people who do not qualify for at least who do not need the funding and who you should for other purposes and this is very dangerous because there are many other purposes from which the money can be used. when they raised the money from the peon taxpayers they are short of saying this is going to be used for certain. purposes. a certain extent they are lying to the european baxley i thought i was working on behalf of the european taxpayer and my obligation was to make sure that payments were correct others didn't see it like that they did that in fact he works for blowing the whistle do you think anything's changed since i don't think anything has changed i now see it in the budgetary control committees for the
12:34 pm
committee in the parliament that oversees the payments out of the budget and i see it in the budget committee that the committee that oversees the planning of the budget and in both committees i can see that if the have no respect for european taxpayers' money and i don't see that fundamental changes that they shouldn't have taken plex you know once anybody who makes of payments in the long run will. take care that the payments would ask the questions what is this plainly and what is the purpose and this questions are not asked by the can. the solution is to blame the member states only gave the money to the u.k. so you played with scrimmages in the realities well yes but you paid the money out the to us the problem questions they dealt so for me nothing has changed
12:35 pm
a lot of window dressing had nothing on this and are you suggesting that the commission is being defrauded and if so who by. well it's being the fraud to a certain extent in. talking about fraud it's always very problematic because obviously you have to prove it and it's very difficult to prove fraud in places where you don't have adequate systems to control ok you that it's no all the tray so it's very difficult to prove it but you know there are going to fisheries who are getting the money without being qualified to get the money that is the essence of the situation do you think brussels is capable of reform is there a will to tighten practices like that are you know i don't think that is any we can tighten this practices because they have a different agenda they want to promote the european union. and to promote this project they're going to be able to get the money to the people who will support
12:36 pm
project not the people who really care about the use of it in a proper way and not the people who are going to you. to grow the economy for certain members but the people who will promote the european union project how deeply entrenched you think the best interests are in brussels who are the real power players well from my experience in the commission fundamentally but also now that i'm in the parliament a powerful people in the e.u. are the directors general in the european commission the european commission passed different directorates with different substantive issues so you have environment karnow me in agriculture and this director generals are the ones who are all the part you know the commissioners common goal every five years this general normally have been there for decades and they hold the power there you know who
12:37 pm
they need to give the funding to get the support where in times of austerity at the moment and members all. across europe are cutting their state spending is there any sign that brussels is doing the same oh absolutely you know last night we spent six hours approving in the budget committee the two thousand and twelve budget and they have what they are asking for a over four percent increase i was even asking for the creases but fundamentally saying we should that policed really usually allowances for the police and they don't want to reduce them i mean i think we should show the example and the n.e.p. use them search they don't want any reduction. and the council of ministers had decided that they wouldn't give more than a two percent increase and here the parliament goes back and say it's not we want
12:38 pm
more than four percent things so i don't think there is no will and i am a lowly role is really in the parliament in partly first reduction of the budget and ultimately it's your goal to as it were destroy the system from where then ultimately my role or my goal is to make people are in the u.k. but also around the rest of you know the truth about the european union you know the truth about how their money is being spent this is my job and then it's up to people to react to this new information or to this information and it's not for something you know we are now in the middle of a crisis and people think well you budget has nothing to do with price but i will give you an example greeks was brought into the europe into europe. when they
12:39 pm
didn't qualify for taking to the alkie for say greece lives. maybe in their accounts but the european commission has us that this ticks off its uterus that who should have trial and still figures and they didn't challenge that site. twenty years later they realize all something is wrong but they are there they have one thousand people working in euro stat two and i said figures they should have come another thing the budget was used to grow the economy of all these countries that came into the euro zone. griefs guards sixty billion partners in the last twenty years out of the european union but the question is were they had the money go because the economy has not grown so where did the money grow william hague the u.k.'s foreign secretary says that the e.u. budget is now under control is that the truth and i think it's not the truth i have
12:40 pm
challenge. speech because he doesn't know. he thinks it's under control because he's asking for a freeze in the budget but while he was talking about the freeze there was somebody in the budget committee who was trying to vote in favor of an increase of four percent so it's not under control and also. you know we don't know exactly where the money is corey and i think we should know it's very simple for everybody you know as i told you why you see the police hasn't run its economy entirely spain portugal. what are all the structural reforms that we have been paying for the last they come in so you know it's not under control members of parliament here in the u.k. now look set to hold a debate on whether there should be a referendum on britain's membership of the european union do you think britain is hooked on the e.u.
12:41 pm
despite talking about wanting to lean. well i think that the government might be hooked to the european union i don't think that the country as a whole is hopefully i think. they you kate could you. negotiate a relationship when there are people who are very critical about you know what would happen how would the trade. the u.k. trade they done existed before the. tri think it could go back to the days in the u.k. it's one of the biggest importers from the european union so forty two percent of the imports come from the european union so i think they are you case in a very solid position. and i think it would be healthy not only for the u.k. but for the rest of the member states because it would force i rename association
12:42 pm
of the european union and all the trade agreements that we have i don't see of course this doesn't happen in twenty four hours i mean of course now we have seventy percent of the legislation coming from the you of course there will be interim period or the u.k. would have to develop new legislation of its own i mean of course it doesn't happen in twenty four hours but we first have to make the decision to leave and then. start the process euro zone countries are staring down the barrel of a gun basically but what e.u. grandees are talking about is in forcing more fiscal union in in the face of economic collapse which seems like a desperate measure of who stands to gain the most from keeping europe together i think. that if there is generally a bureaucracy in brussels who stands to gain it is those people who have been pushing the project all along and they want this unity and union who are very
12:43 pm
will hold the power over all the member states and finally as a euro skeptic do you feel any way vindicated by what's going on in the euro zone at the moment. sadly yes i feel vindicated because you know if people had heard and had sort of responded to my claims down here some go and maybe this wouldn't have popped so yes i think you've indicated that it's sad to say this because we could have prevented so all that's happening today trying to us and thank you very much thank you. feel. to.

12:47 pm
group game russia for themselves an excellent position to top that pulled by two points from the remaining fixture is against andorra a team ranked at the very bottom of the people rankings alongside the likes of american samoa a monster ratz russia a massive favorites to claim all three points even though a draw would supply it's an uppercut stance will not qualify playing good football we tried to play with going to those attacking food well organized and i think the team is doing well going it would work better than the other one but still while i think the team is playing quote at their two full well the dutchman does have a few selection concerns constantine's free and open on exam the new call for both parts of spain did after picking up yellow cards in slovakia last time out for your issue called as was his part of the pit after picking up a knock in jelena. owns of course it's ok and he's likely to retain his stance and
12:48 pm
scott what some of the fringe players may be given a chance of a person eleven however uppercuts biggest concern is how he and dorrans may try to use less than ten means to stop his team results to those things more or less to fake the stupid yellow cards because this is quite irritating to play realize it as well in. they don't want to. keep. one man who are no more than a thing or two about i'm doris tractates andrea shot in percent of years ago against the same honan's as russia just about qualify for euro two thousand and eight a missing person games a bad torment due to his red card and not because warning his players not to react to the antics of very opponents. to the players. so we have to blow for discipline
12:49 pm
because this is the way they like a clue. we have to prepare for that it's been a very good qualifying campaign for the russians have dominated if we want to be annoying against a part of the plane in the group and they'll be looking to put their ticket to poland ukraine in style russia we're going touching distance of next year's european championships or standing in their way a bridge in poland and ukraine around the inside that have only won one competitive mind should be history or to go back outside of what was the start of non-survivor it's kind of russia played to anything like their full potential and they should have absolutely no problems whatsoever in picking up three points richard on r.t. . well russia on the other side who can make it still the tournament from group b. second place ireland will take on third place armenia in dublin with both sides aiming to keep their european championship dreams alive the irish need a points to convert second spot and a play off place but will be that they can't say robbie keane the striker suffered
12:50 pm
a fine injury during friday's two know when iran tour west promised simon cox will take place up front while shay given will take the captain's armband and the goalkeepers are fully aware of the dangers of playing armenia insults he could have second spot with a victory at every the stadium. during the home parks was going for the belief that we can go on and beat them and i know they'll be coming think in the symbol. you know it's a chance for us to you know center on which which is all you can ask for in our city really and anybody going to run and do the business and armenia had a taste of the of the the stadium with a training session on monday the eastern european side lost one nil it's going to ireland in the opening round of last year's european qualifiers but since that defeats they've only been beat once in eight matches during this campaign that won the last three games scoring eleven times in the process and conceding just once so they're brimming with confidence but are also full of respect for the irish. instill in the. team. we believe we can
12:51 pm
win the skin because. it's important for us to. another understand. at this is how growth we currently looks just a drop in russia would ensure they automatically qualify for next summer's european championships and also a point for ireland would mean they finished second to get into a two legged playoff. fever general secretary jerome valcke a has been on a visit to russia to check on the host nation's progress for the twenty eighteen world cup it might be just under seven years until the competition kicks off there's just one year to go into russia must name the eleven cities and twelve stadiums which will host the biggest tournament and the country sports minister is confident about russia's cooperation so far that you would win those russia was given the right to your host the world cup with head
12:52 pm
a little millings and consultations with people are all juiced budgeting branding oh important issues concerning the world cup it's quite basic a world cup you need it all cities we stadiums public transport or. local transport i would say national domestic transport between the cities that. you have to ensure that all these different group of people the media are the officials the players and the friends they can enjoy the country during that period of the world cup but. the meter to us enough was lined up a meeting with second seed andy murray in the second round of the shanghai masters on the russian's hard fought opening with last year's winner in take you moderate received a fall into the second round of personal crap to make it the hard way we play from a set down to knock out because those last two ask forty five minutes on court. andy roddick is free to grab the three but the ten seeded american have to battle
12:53 pm
but not break down and say percent point in the second set for breaking all day is people going to fall for love i was actually trying to match seven six seven five six up to him sprained at the last throw. and america's top man marty fish was also sent packing at this stage throwing away one set leaves three sets to australia up and come up in arms to make their six six one six four way it ended say second top ten spot subsided east and a shy of ten nineteen the worst of the lot in so doing during his three round quarterfinals i think it's been building. for all former world number three david nalbandian went crashing out to florian wire in straight sets the german number fifteen seed converted the first of its three match points and is not in line to see rafael nadal. and finally russian mixed martial arts supreme. is preparing to face one of his biggest challenges the last emperor goes up against
12:54 pm
american jeff monson in moscow on the end of the twentieth and sees the fight as a chance to revive his career through the onion reports. the newfies never screamed the words if you mention john we needed the mixed martial arts maybe we could be true dickie changed last year it revealing it's never used words to actually be. examined i. think. brazil and for brazil were doomed forcing the russians to check out that in essence kick started it downward spiral into can last mississippi losses long as you love and dan can you say. we can make an option with thirty five year old but in any good place he's fuckin drunk and was just thrown in the back seat the way the three dogs and i lost my friends we call them warm but the wind somehow eluded
12:55 pm
me because i felt like a good i had chances was god's will was different it would do to get back to winning ways for truly unicron brother said to take a walk for the first individual mixed martial arts class in moscow jeff monson the man who stands between him and the dancing on the bandit went to four year old morrison is it too drunk world mission risky jan panicked to get his nickname snowman from his brazilian jiu-jitsu counterpart the sun just back from his high school demeanor and the pressure for the as a legend. you guys said a long time ago he's the best heavyweight of all time. so how privileged to fight him is an honor and but i'm going to train hard and and you know i only take pride experts when so i start to win but i think it can be very difficult challenge those
